Today’s blog we’re taking a sneak peak at the box turtle team.

Why might you ask?

Well, while Kirsten is moving her personal belongings to Lake County, Sam is diving into a mini adventure with the box turtle team!

“I know I’m cheating on the Blanding’s just a little bit, but they are still my favorites!”

Here she was able to learn tons of new turtle-tastic techniques about how to draw blood on a turtle and how to swab them. Although these tasks are slightly different on a box turtle than on a Blanding’s, the skills are definitely transferable. Here are some photos and a mini blog about her time in Vermillion County.
